Till Death Does Us Apart

I never thought I could love. Never. Never thought that I would fall in love too. But as they say, love has its own ways. It conquers you in the most unexpected way. It takes you by sheer surprise. You do not really have any control over it. The things you were afraid of doing…

Forbidden: Part 2

Read Forbidden: Part 1 here. After three long years, there they were: meeting as counterparts, as they both taught in adjacent colleges. He was invited as a guest lecturer in her college to deliver a lecture upon the theme of the seminar for which he was there. It was in the auditorium that she noticed…

Discovery

Hola all the beautiful women out there. I am sorry that this post comes a bit late where it should have been posted yesterday on the International Women’s Day but I was just busy enjoying the day with the favorite activity of every girl- SHOPPING!!!! Yayyyyy!! This is just a previous post that I am…

Unconditional

They loved each other, to the core. The day she entered her life, everything changed. She did not even love her son the way she loved her. It was something special. Beyond words. She entered her life crying. But that was the last day she allowed her to cry. Life never seemed so good. She…

Unexpressed

It was their first time out together. He would never take her with him. “It would look odd,” he always thought. “I will be embarrassed,” he reasoned, whenever she complained that he did not take her out to places with him. Living under the same roof, they always fought. Always. Just like Tom, and his…

“Turmoil” by Ankita Jain

Originally posted on Vigil Pub Magazine:
He loved her, way too much. She has been someone that he had cherished since he was a child, when he did not even understand the meaning of love, when he was innocent, innocent enough to not know that it will be something ‘bad’ in the eyes of the…

Beyond All Else

It was a furious storm outside, imitating their emotions. They had engaged in a very crucial debate. He was planning to abandon their relationship, forgetting all the five years of love, joy and bonding that they had been a part of, together. No, it was not easy for him either. It pained him to even…

Discovery

She stood in front of him, just the way she was- no pretensions, no make-up, no lies; her true, her inner self. She kept looking at him, too engrossed in him. And he, in her. She knew him to be fair for he would tell her the way she was, the way she exactly, really,…

Thirst

He waited by the side of the window, waiting for her to come. He was sure she will. Just didn’t know when. The weather outside helped remove any last vestiges of doubt that he might had in his heart regarding her arrival. The enchanting scene outside could not betray the longing inside. The trees rustled…

Love Till The Last Sight

They had been seeing each other for weeks now. Each day when they met, they would meet something new in each other. She was always worried what would the world say. Definitely try to shame them when they came to know about it. And why not? It was not their age to fall in love….

Truly, Madly, Deeply

She entered the room, with a long face. It had not been one of the good days at work. She did not want to talk to anyone. No one. Just alone. She and her thoughts. Alone. But there he was, stealthily entering and making his way towards her. How could he leave her alone, especially…
